Never said the tone circuit didn't have an impact on the sound.
My point (and not only my point, it's the truth ) was no matter what brand, type (tantal, chemical, ceramic, plastic...) or colour the cap is, there will be no difference at all on the sound if the mesured capacity values are the same.
Overpriced caps will do exactly the same thing than the others.
If you hear a différence it's because :
*the values are not the same
*you are a psycholigical victim of this marketing BS
Since we are on an Ibanez forum, can I ask how many Jem, JS
, Prestige or J Custom models come with these overpriced caps ? These are pretty expensive guitars... ads or back of the headstock claim that they are the finest sounding instruments...
Regarding their price, the caps should be the best available no ?
I only have a Fujigen FGM400QM and it came with a simple and tiny ceramic cap. It's not a J Custom but it is a pricy signature guitar though.
Can people here tell us what original cap is in their Prestige, Jem, J Custom ?
